Great changes, especially love the balance tweaks , really looking forward to try them out.
Masterscout could do with some further nerf, removing the non attack option altogether (maybe, maybe keep it for scout only?), the fast movement is already awesome enough (= on average +1/2 extra movement = 50% faster levelling ...)
Wealthy option should be reduced from 1000 to maybe 600 (700?), very op atm
Faction traits: atm it is possible to choose +10% research together with -10% research weakness, netting u the early tech for no exta costs
Also Faction traits: No ranged weapons still allows the staves from the enchanters option - wai?
